Came on a Sunday brunch hour and the wait was 40 min, but after grabbing a cup of coffee around the corner, the wait was soon over and we managed to snag bar seats. The atmosphere is charming, airy, and welcoming. Good for any occasion and would imagine dinners to be suitable for family and dates alike. The staff was friendly and attentive and the food was sophisticated and comforting. We ordered the croque madame, pancakes to share, and the merguez and eggs. The croque madame was a very generous portion and extremely satisfying, but is definitely on the heavier side. The baked pancakes are as everyone says--amazing, so definitely recommended for everyone to try at least once. The merguez was good, but a bit underwhelming. Appropriate for anyone on a protein heavy diet as it comes with the sausage, eggs and greens. Hoping we can come for dinner next time!

We lived in Paris this past year and recently moved to New York. This restaurant is a neighborhood gem and great find. They serve authentic and delicious French food, and the place is never busy. The servers are friendly and very attentive.

Waited an hour for this place to open for brunch as i was so determined to have the pancakes - but then was told it would be 45 min wait while they baked in the oven, so i ordered the french toast instead. It was DELICIOUS - plump, crisp, not too eggy and covered in fresh berries - not your average floppy diner affair. The coffee was also great. I wish we could have returned for dinner as i bet it would have been ace.

We live in Brooklyn and we decided to go to Williamsburg for dinner. Found this in Zagat's and decided to try it - glad we did. Good French bistro. I had a delicious tomato and cucumber salad, and the lamb merguez - delicious. My husband had the onion soup, which he thought was one of the better ones that he has had and the corn risotto. For dessert we shared cheese plate. Great food, nice place and not too crowded. Worth the drive!

Amazing croque madame and baked "pancakes" which is more like a baked light fluffy pastry. Difficult to achieve, but the 2nd time was even better than the 1st! I make the best blueberry buttermilk pancakes at home, but THESE pancakes are fabulous. Because the pancakes are baked, they stayed hot until the end. The Croque-Madame was spectacular - and we've had the dish all over and this was the best we've ever had. Can't keep going back so often or our waistlines will expand! Highly recommend.
